Learning Outcomes

This module offers an advanced course in “Information Modeling” and “Modeling Methodology”. Participants will achieve detailed competences in modeling as well classical databases and information systems as well as highly heterogeneous distributed information systems. They will be enabled to integrate static (structure) and dynamic (processes and behavior) modeling approaches for these classes of information systems. The competence of critically choosing (or even developing) an appropriate set of modeling techniques and the modeling methodology for complex information modeling tasks by understanding the foundations of modeling languages (semantics and metamodelling approaches) is the main qualification objective. Participants are enabled to use and modify advanced modeling constructs, applying (meta-)modeling methodology to model-based integration of software and data components.


- Abstraction and Modularization in Information, Software and Business Process Modeling - Object-oriented Information Modeling - Models and Modeling Languages for Semi-structured Data - Metamodels / MOF-Hierarchy - Semantics of Modeling Languages - Combining Different Modeling Paradigms - (Modeling) Language Extensions via Metamodels and/or Math. Formalisms - Connecting Information and Business Process Modeling - Model Management, e.g. Model Transformation, Model Integration (matching/merging/...) - Business Applications of Model-Based Software & Data Integration

Test description (Module completion)

The grade for this module consists of two parts (each weighted with 50%): 1. Assessment of 4 home exercises (working in small groups) 2. Written test The final grade according to § 47 (2) AllgStuPO will be calculated with the faculty grading table 2. (Die Gesamtnote gemäß § 47 (2) AllgStuPO wird nach dem Notenschlüssel 2 der Fakultät IV ermittelt.)

Duration of the Module

This module can be completed in one semester.

Maximum Number of Participants

The maximum capacity of students is 30.
